Well, whaddya know.
According to that sourcelink, UN Climate Official (yes, that’s a thing) Ottmar Edenhofer has admitted, openly and freely, what the entire climate change alarmist movement is all about. And by the way, Edenhofer co-chaired the IPCC working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.
Here’s what he said:
“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.”
So what’s all the fuss about? What’s the purpose of all of the global climate change activism? He’s happy to tell you:
“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Well then. I’m glad that’s finally out in the open. Cue progressive wackjobs like Leo DiCaprio and Al Gore and Obama himself ignoring this completely.
Climate change activism has JACK SQUAT to do with the temperature of the earth or polar bears or ice caps or anything of the sort. It’s purely about wealth distribution. It’s about the destruction of capitalism. It’s about precisely what Ottmar Edenhofer says it’s about.
Want proof that his words won’t change the minds of the aforementioned progressive blowhards? Well, consider the fact that just five years ago, when Edenhofer was previewing the climate summit in Cancun, he said:
“…the next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”
And according to the sourcelink, Edenhofer isn’t the first climate change official to make this admission. Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change said, in advance of the Paris climate change summit:
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution. This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
I’m not sure why we need more discussion about this. The people closest to this issue are openly admitting the ulterior motives behind their activism. Shouldn’t we take them at their word?
